Immersive Music Painter

The body has a four dimensional structure in space and in time. That is why it can act as an instrument. We imagine an installation in which movements and postures of the hand are translated into sound. However, we thought that it wouldn't be enough for the performer to merely hear the sound of his body: we wanted to provide him a visual trace of his hand in space. The performer can move freely inside the body-made composition but he can also interact with past traces of himself to induce new effects on current sounds. There are three main virtual instruments a performer can create: a light trail that loops automatically; strings the performer will draw and pluck; drums constituted by pairs of balls that collide.
